Moving day.

Well, Completed cleaning out and packing all the items from my travel trailer. Picking up the "New to me" Puma Fifth wheel tomorrow morning and didn't want to move everything from one trailer to the next. Hope this is my last move. (yea Right).

We love our Puma 253fbs. Bought new 2 years ago and have had many enjoyable days with minimal problems. The few minor issues we had in the beginning were taken care of quickly under warranty. Have looked at larger more expensive units but we enjoy state parks and larger units are difficult to park in some of our favorite places. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we have ours. A lot of storage in this model.also.

When we were looking for the step up from the PU we considered TT and FW. We eventually settled on the TT due to towing concerns (Ram 1500) and the loss of the truck bed. We use the bed all the time. How do you guys get along without the bed space?

There was no way I wasn't going to have an electric tongue jack. I spent WAY too much time first cranking up the tongue of the PU, then cranking up the roof! I also really wanted electric stabilizing jacks but the used unit we bought doesn't have them and to add is something like $300 each if I do it myself.

The only thing I really think is a hassle is the WDH. It's not hard but a real pain. If my wife isn't helping then I have to go all the way around the truck to get to the other side, then back again, and again..... Hopefully as I get better at it it won't be as big a deal.
